ANNOUNCING The INCrowd's Thanksgiving Scavenger Hunt

The INCrowd is having a scavenger hunt! It is a Thanksgiving theme and will run from November 15 through November 20.

The prize will be a gift basket full of items generously donated by INCrowd members:


It is a terrific prize that is worth over $200! All wonderful handmade items from some of your favorite Indiana artists! Make sure you give it your best shot so YOU can be the winner. Think of all the nice gifts you will get for the upcoming holidays! They'll think you spent a fortune, and it can all be yours just for collecting the items in our scavenger hunt!

All you have to do is collect these six Thanksgiving related items: Pumpkin pie, indian corn, cornucopia, fruit basket, roast turkey, and live turkey.
The rules are simple:

1. You must have an Etsy account, or sign up for one on the website .

2. Search the participating shops listed below to find an item in the hunt. They will look just like the ones above, but may be smaller or larger. There are only six items to be found, and they will be found on page one of six of our shops (not hidden, but in plain view). When you find an item, jot down what it is, and the shop you found it in. If you found the live turkey in muyinmolly's shop, your answer would be "live turkey, muyinmolly"

3. When you've found all of the items, send a convo to Gwen ( with all your answers.

4. The winner will be the entry with the most items collected. In the likely event of a tie, the winner will be chosen at random from all the correct entries.

5. The contest will run for five days from November 15 through Novemeber 20. The winner will be notified via convo on November 21, and will be published on the blog and on the Etsy forums.
